Even with all the change and uncertainty we faced in 2020, support for the KDS Steadfast, Loyal, Ever True Annual Fund campaign helped the school meet our unique challenges head-on. With funds donated to the Annual Fund campaign last year, we completed emergency plumbing repairs in the Jacobs Building; renovated two Elementary School restrooms; repaired roof leaks in various buildings; paid for fire alarm service and monitoring; provided maintenance for lawn mowers and tractors; paid for pest control service for 40 buildings; and much more. We also expanded the Blessings Bags program to address the uncertainty of food availability during the early days of the pandemic; made masks for our students and other underserved populations in our community and country; and stocked our Patriot Pantries with snacks, personal items and toiletries our struggling students may need.
And with new challenges facing our school and our students every day, your help this year is critical. Donors like you make it possible for us to continue to address the day-to-day maintenance needs of our 240-acre campus; to enhance the hands-on learning opportunities presented through our Agri-Science, Family and Consumer Sciences, PatriotVision, and Robotics programs; and to actively fulfill our mission of providing opportunities for educational and personal growth for students, while emphasizing patriotism, responsible citizenship, and the historical legacy of the school.
Please join us in ensuring this important work continues by becoming a Steadfast, Loyal, Ever True partner by making a secure donation.
